WDTB is Wrapping Up After 5 Years

New adventures are on the horizon for my family as we move west for my husband’s new job. That’s right … these east-coasters are moving WEST!

This summer of fun and relaxation has instead turned into a whole lot of packing and catching up with friends before we say our final farewells. It’s exciting as we contemplate all the new and fun events and activities coming up in our future, but it is also hard to say goodbye to long-time friends and family, and it’s hard to say goodbye to all of you here at What’s Doing? Tampa Bay.

What this means for WDTB …
Needless to say, I don’t have as much time as I used to to seek out and post fun new opportunities for you all. I’ve just posted 4th of July family events, so look for that tab above. The site will continue to be accessible on the web until the kids return to school at the end of August, and all the FREE and cheap summer fun activities I’ve posted will still be there to help you plan a great summer for your kids. But mostly, I will be posting and reposting events as I have time on the WDTB Facebook page, so look for me there.

ThanksThanks for the memories!
I want to thank all of you for 5 awesome years. It’s been quite a run! When we moved to Tampa 7 years ago, I never thought I’d be doing this, but I’m so glad I did! WDTB couldn’t have become the resource it has been had it not been for parents like you to support and share it. And I wish you all many more years of family fun! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your lives during our time here in Tampa, FL.

Best wishes,
